All I got is time, Nothing else is mine.
All I want is you and one more tomorrow.
Nothing lasts to long, When I leave it's gone.
So I send my mind ahead and hope to follow.

Yes, I know I have a lifetime coming,
But I've got it all figured out,
Everybody's lonely, Everybody's lonely,
Everybody's lonely, That's what it's all about.

I've had my share of heartaches, misfortune and mistakes.
Occasionally this life has left me battered.
But I can't blame no one else, 'cause what I've done to myself
Is the only kind of history that matters.

Yes, I know I have a lifetime coming,
But I've got it all figured out,
Everybody's lonely, Everybody's lonely,
Everybody's lonely, That's what it's all about.

Now, maybe you'll come with me, and maybe you will stay,
And maybe you'll just watch awhile then wander.
It seems like all the good things in my life just drift away,
But maybe you will stay this time, I wonder.

Yes, I know I have a lifetime coming,
But I've got it all figured out,
Everybody's lonely, Everybody's lonely,
Everybody's lonely, That's what it's all about.
